Lucy possesses almost 20 years of commercial dispute resolution experience with a focus on financial services, contentious restructuring, insolvency, trusts and shareholder disputes.


Lucy joined Hausfeld as a partner in June 2018. She has extensive experience of managing international, cross-border litigation, working frequently in the Chancery and Queen’s Bench Divisions of the English High Court (including Commercial Court) and Court of Appeal. She has also conducted several commercial arbitrations under the LCIA, ICC and ad hoc rules and most recently, was instructed on an LCIA arbitration in the aerospace sector.

Prior to joining Hausfeld, Lucy was of counsel at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in London where she worked for eight years. She commenced her career at Paul, Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison in New York before joining Freshfields Bruckhaus Derringer in the Financial Institution Dispute Resolution Group in London.

Previously, Lucy worked for a leading global litigation funder, which has honed her commercial sense and makes her well-placed to advise clients on litigation funding matters, including strategies for securing funding.


Lucy’s clients – who often act adverse to large financial institutions – include corporates, high net worth individuals, hedge funds, private equity funds and insolvency practitioners. She is very well connected within the professional services community who often turn to her to refer work if they are conflicted.  

Lucy heads the London DEI Committee and plays an active role in all of the affinity groups dealing with racial justice, LGBTQ+, women, social inclusion and disability.
